George Washington University Fall 2019 transfers

maira91maira91 Registered User Posts: 56 Junior Member
Hey!

Since no one has started a fall 2019 transfers I thought I would start one.
My stats: GPA from my main comm. college is a 4.0 and I got a B in one class that I took at another college so my overall GPA is 3.9 and my major is political science. I am apart of PTK and have volunteered in an international human rights organization throughout high school and a few times during my first year at my cc.
By the time I transfer I will have 60 units. How do my stats look like?

    Your GPA is excellent...you should be fine. Just make sure that you take the application process seriously and take time to write essays that provide clear rationales for why you want to transfer to George Washington. What school are you trying to transfer into at George Washington? You haven't provided any information as to what school you're trying to matriculate into at George Washington (i.e Elliot School of International Affairs, School of Business, School of Engineering).

    Hey

    I'm trying to transfer into the Elliot school of International Affairs at George Washington university in the Fall of 2019. Any suggestions about the program. How competitive it is to get accepted. And also ideas about what to include in the common app essay that will stand out.

    Does anyone know when GW lets people applying for the Spring semester know of their decision?
  • maira91maira91 Registered User Posts: 56 Junior Member
    @Zeezee001 Based on past GW threads the Elliot school of International affairs is one of the competitive schools at GW but I think if you got good stats your chances should be good.

    I think you have to call them for that @ahill26

    how good is the financial aid packet? I heard from some that it was good but I heard some transfers saying they didn't get much.

    @ahill26 I believe GW started rolling out decision letters(for spring) today. I just got mine in a few hours ago.

    I'm currently a freshman commuting to a four year University. I think I should have a gpa above 3.5 but I'll see next week. My high school gpa was a 4.0 (96) weighted. I'm applying for Political Science and I want to double major in Geography. Very nervous but also looking at the common data set about half of transfer applicants get in compared to 30% of first years so we'll have to see

    I'm currently a freshman attending Penn State at the University Park campus and hoping to transfer to GW for the Fall 2019 semester. GW has been my dream school forever, but unfortunately I was denied my freshman year. I realized my faults in my application, and am hoping this time around I will be accepted as a Psychology major. I have a 3.63 GPA currently for my fall semester with all A's except for one C in chemistry, which is a notoriously hard course at UP. I had a 4.0 (96) weighted GPA in high school. I secured a Teaching Assistant position for next semester for a Psychology 100 course, got on the Dean's List for the fall semester, I'm a member of a sustainability club, a health and wellness club, and a community service sorority. I'm extremely nervous but also extremely hopeful; there's no place I'd rather be than Foggy Bottom.

    If anyone could let me know how my chances look that would be great. Also, on the Common App in the Documents section there is an option for a 'Personal Statement,' is that where we respond to the prompt as to why we want to transfer?

    Thank you.

    I am currently a Freshman at a small state school commuting. Here's some stats now that my first semester is over:

    High School:
    96 GPA Weighted
    NHS and Tri-M
    Drama Club (4 Years)
    Concert/Marching Band (4 Years, Drum Major)
    Jazz Band (3 Years)
    Debate (1 Year)

    My ECs are few but the ones I had I was committed too. As I realized my academic interests my course selection got less intense since I only wanted to focus on the advanced courses which could keep me focused shooting myself in the foot a bit. I applied to a small range of schools with only a couple I had an interest in so I decided to commute to my local 4-year university this year to give myself time to adjust/think about what I want.

    College:
    4.0 GPA
    Cashier at Grocery Store (2 Years and current)
    Internship with State Representative (Half a year and current)
    Wind Symphony (I received credit for it this past semester but I can't due to a schedule conflict next but I'll still be performing)
    Did a Musical at a local theatre
    Circle K
    Honors Advisory Council

    I recently developed an interest in Geography/Environmental Studies while at my current school but my major is political science. I want to double major or minor in these two areas and go on to either do lobbying, activism or law school concerning environmental regulations or city planning. I was wondering, should I apply for poli sci since it is so popular or would I have an easier time applying for Geography or Environmental Studies?

    Good Luck to everyone else in this thread!

    @gwhopeful19 since it gives you the option you can talk about yourself and why you want to transfer but its not required.
